Fraserburgh’s first Super Saturday of 2014 has been hailed as a fantastic success by organisers - with a huge turnout for the street fair.

The Homecoming-themed event featured a host of stalls, including food tasting stands, activities for children and entertainment.

The Royal British Legion Pipe Band opened the fun day at 10am, a crowd having already gathered for the start of the event.

As well as local residents, Super Saturday was also attended by a number of political representatives, including First Minister Alex Salmond, Fraserburgh councillor Charles Buchan, Ian Hudghton MEP and SNP European election candidate Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh.

Commenting, organiser Anne Gostling said: “Super Saturday opened with a bang with the Royal British Legion Pipe Band which set the stage for a fun-filled day for the town.

“The event was a fantastic success and the residents I spoke to said they thoroughly enjoyed their day.

“We look forward to the fishing-themed Super Saturday on June 14 and we hope it will be even bigger and better.”

As part of the first Super Saturday, a ‘Spot The Tartan’ competition was held, where participants had to look for various tartans.

Jozefine Duthie of Fraserburgh Forward commented: “The Spot The Tartan window competition sponsored by local businesses for the Homecoming Super Saturday was organised by Fraserburgh Forward Business Association.

“Mr Ian Dyga drew out two winning entries: Gillian and Hannah Gerrie share one £25 prize and Kadie Gerrie wins the second £25 prize.”
